Answer’s to Jo’s weekly questions over at Dreamwidth.
8. Would you rather give up all drinks except water, or give up eating anything that was cooked in an oven?
I could never give up baked goods, so I guess drinks other than water have to go!
9. What would happen if a maximum income of $500,000 (or equivalent in your currency) was implemented?
I would like to think the excess was used to spread it around so that nobody would have to live below the poverty line, but what I really think would happen that the well-off/rich would just find a way around it just like they now find ways around paying their taxes.
10. If extra-terrestrials ever made first contact with us, would you prefer they be robotic or organic?
I think organic… because I think there’d be a huge change that robotic intelligence would see us (humanity) as a illogical scourge to be abolished whether it’s to save the planet and nature, or to mine the planet for metals etc. they need is just a toss of a coin.
11. When was the last time you worked incredibly hard?
Incredibly hard? I’m not sure I’ve worked **incredibly** hard since my school days so 30+ years ago. Hard? Yes, every year at some point when I get fed up with having so medications to take and having to keep track of my symptoms, but so far that hasn’t crossed into the realm **incredibly hard**.
12. Do you know someone who really reminds you of a character in a TV show, movie or book?
Not a character, but my cousin when she was young sometimes looked like then-young Jon Bon Jovi when she smiled/grinned in a certain way.
13. What is the most annoying thing about the social media platform you use most often?
It’s a toss up between shouting into void (my posts) and finding new posts relevant to interests because algorythim throws up old (popular) posts up.
14. Do you have nicknames for people in your life (not including nicknames or code names that you might use on social media for privacy reasons)?
15. What or who has taught you most of the information you use regularly?
I read every day and everything I use/do regularly is in one way or another based on being able to read well. My parents taught me the basics of reading, and school went on to to teach more. School also as schooled me in the the basics of society and what a citizen (in theory) can find and apply/achieve/reach for. And especially library studies taught me how to look for further information when I need it.
